to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> e see how all those states were blue? his confident predictions that john mccain was going to win all those states in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he was going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in the last four days of the campaign. there are patterns to how presidential elections end. some of the same stuff happens every four years. specifically, in 1992, the republican candidate was poppy bush. he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and then the next day, he lost pennsylvania. the next election, 1996
cain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we'll think we got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. you know, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain and we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, as we learn that john mccrane surprised them and won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his political enemies, just gratuitously throwing that in. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio,
one-point lead in florida. and according to a market university poll he is up by eight points. in colorado the president is up by three points? ohio, he is up by two points. and the most recent polls in nevada and new hampshire have him up there as well. check this out! 332 electoral votes to 188 according -- i think i just knocked that out. to 191. that's from today. the only swing state that shows he is down -- actually tied today but down over all is in north carolina. and then there's pennsylvania. the romney camp made a $120,000 ad buy yesterday and three super pacs supporting romney have poured $6 million into pennsylvania just this week. why, you might ask? well, it's all part of their plan to quote, expand the electoral map. the president is up by four points in pennsylvania and they are still pouring all of that money into it. the poll out today was a franklin and marshall poll. and david axelrod placed an interesting range isser on whether the participate would take minnesota, michigan or pennsylvania. >> i will shave off my mustache if we lose a
states. ohio and florida. the latest nbc news "wall street journal" m.arist poll shows president obama holding on a six-point lead among likely voters in the buckeye state. meanwhile in florida an creamily tight race there two points separating the candidates with the president ahead in the sunshine states 49 to 47%. so much of this race, of course, depends on these two states. ohio and florida. for some insight i want to bring in our nbc news deputy political editor. let's start with ohio good friend. if mitt romney can't win in ohio what would his path to 270, what would his path to victory have to look like. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got
the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come ro
. running mate paul ryan will hold events in ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, and florida. meanwhile, president obama was quick to respond to governor romney's latest attacks during his tour through ohio on friday. >> suddenly he's the candidate of change. but we know what change looks like. and what he's trying to sell, that ain't it. that ain't it. >> two new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls to show with you this morning. president obama with a six-point lead among likely voters in ohio. the numbers you see there, 51% to 45%. then going on to florida, the president gets support from 49% of likely voters. mitt romney, very close behind with 47%. let's go now to the latest on governor romney's campaign stops today. he starts off with a rally coming up in just about two hours, 9:00 a.m. nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire. good morning to you, peter. >> alex, good morning to you. we're on the tarmac here now in new hampshire, specifically just a short time from now this is going to fill up with a big crowd greeting mitt romney and then sending him on his wail for what will be an exha
and florida. if laura trevelyan is in miami. clyde is in cleveland. let's start with you. have aligned and as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country -- have the lines been as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country? >> they have been pretty long. at about 7:00 this morning, the actual stores open at 6:30 a.m., and there were already 20 people there. and it was a slow trickle. election officials are estimating about 70%, not as high in the previous election. but lorimar, millions have already voted in early voting -- but remember, millions have already voted in early voting in this state. we did see joe biden breeze in to try to shore up the final push for votes. president obama has had a bit of a lead during the last few months and it has tightened in the last few months -- few weeks. unemployment is lower. there are fewer foreclosures. there is a sense of optimism here and that has helped president obama, but it is tight. statistically, is still within the margin of error. we could be in for a long night. >> i hope not. thanks very much. laura
to the president coming up next hour. millions of americans have already voted in places like florida, ohio, and in georgia. but that is just a fraction of the total, which makes the next three days pretty darn important for the candidates. joining me now, as she does at this time every week, is cnn contributor maria cardona. and from miami this morning, cnn contributor anna navarro. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> maria, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're going to go into a nose spin and we don't want to suffer from political schizophrenia. my advice is that we don't obsess about polls because it really could lead to temporary insanity between now and november 6th. i just saw two polls last night from florida. one mitt romney six points up on barack obama, and the sec
development, most of the country enjoying very good weather, parts of wisconsin, florida, not so much, but, generally, the rule of thumb on this is, if the weather is good, advantage democrats. they are more inclined to go to the polls and less so when the weather is bad. that is the old saying. do you buy that? >>guest: i do, the voter intensity is on romney's side. so, more of the romney supporters are willing to stand in line in bad weather, wisconsin and florida obviously battleground states, so, having good weather across the country is an advantage for obama but having some rain in wisconsin and florida could help romney. they used to rain in florida but that is it. the enthusiasm is on the g.o.p. side. >>neil: you talk about usually voting and versus later voting with better than 30 million americans having already voted and that changes the cram ma. significantly so? do you want to break it down? >>guest: the obama campaign is nervous about the youth vote and excited about president obama in 2008 and less so four years later so they were urging students to vote early before electio
. >> gretchen: sticking to the election now. every hour and rally makes a difference. we have florida kelly wright in washington to lookk at the closing pitches. >> good morning as well. it is the final day before tomorrow, governor mitt romney is giving everything he's got to win the presidency. it is the last full day of campaigning for mitt romney. he will spend the day to urge people to get out and vote. he offers new leadership and faith in the american spirit. >> does anyone fear that the american dream is fading away and wondering if better jobs and paychecks are the thing of a past. i have a clear message. with the right leadership america is about to come roaring back. >> president obama went to colorado where he's in a very close race with governor and he won the state four years ago. >> this is not just a choice between two candidates and two parties, it is a choice of two visions for america. it is a choice between a return for the top down policiless that crashed our policy or the strong growing middle class base policies that are getting us out of a crisis. >> so both presiden
for the results to come in from florida. >> please don't pick on florida >> -- on cbs this morning. >> you're not allowed to campaign within 100 feet of a polling station. but i found countless signs telling me to vote for some guy called aki. >>> welcome to cbs "this morning." a powerful nor'easter is bringing new trouble for tens of thousands of superstorm sandy victims. so far the new storm has knocked out electricity to at least 60,000 homes and businesses in the new york city area. many of them had just got entheir power restored. >> the winter storm brought rain, strong winds and several inches of snow region. airlines cancelled nearly 1600 flights and highways and train routes were also disrupted and families shivered in homes. ben, how is everybody doing? >> reporter: well, norah you can see this is the last thing that people needed. the streets in tuckerton flood again, front yards flood. as nor'easters go this wouldn't be a big deal. but for a couple of days people were able to come back to this neighborhood to save what they could, tearing out carpets, ripping down walls. that h
. >> millions of people in florida have already cast their ballots through early voting, but now the u.s. department of justice has -- i should say the justice department has stepped in to monitor the situation in south florida after word of long lines and other problems. we have a live report on that. plus a couple of auto companies that missed. they overstated gas mileage on around a million cars. so what now? they have agreed to pay. the details coming up. om libert. total your car, and we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. learn about it at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility -- what's your policy? >> a classified state department document reveals security was so bad at benghazi, rib libya, officials were talking about suspending operations. it was less than a month that killed the ambassador and three other americans. katheryn has been on the story from the beginning. she's in d.c. tonight. you've seen this document, right? >> i have, shepard. i reviewed the secret cable that reads hike a cry for help. it told washington the consulate could n
in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
. among them, florida, a state of keen interest to you. >> some of the stuff that they were talking about. that is clearly a swing state that romney had to win. the numbers, an increasing share, it shows romney with a slight lead. this is is shown that obama is winning florida. they have not declared that. those coming out of the polls, 52% to 48%, they are for obama. and romney, he would then have to have whatever is left, including ohio. obama is going to squeak out a victory in florida. that would really possibly have meeting. i think in terms of the issue of what chris and bob have been talking about, i think the occupy movement, to some extent -- to some extent, it really did backbone to the democratic party to make the fight for taxing the rich against the 1%. it gave the obama campaign the realization that, yes, they could possibly hobble together a winning combination by a populist campaign. my fear now is the fiscal cliff, where there is going to be immense pressures on obama and on the democratic party to make all kinds of concessions in an effort to build together a budget, a f
their final efforts. >> on sunday president obama campaigned in concord, new hampshire, hollywood, florida, cincinnati, ohio, and aurora, colorado. he begins this morning with a rally in madison, wisconsin. nancy cordes is there covering the obama campaign. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president is due to address this crowd in about an hour and a half. he spends this final day of the campaign in three key midwestern states. here in wisconsin, then in ohio, and iowa. if he sweeps all three of those states tomorrow, his victory is almost assured and campaign officials say they feel very good about their chances. >> hello, florida! hello, virginia! hello, ohio! >> reporter: crisscrossing the country in this final lap, the president told crowds of 10,000 and 20,000 that he is the same bipartisan hopeful truth teller they elected four years ago. >> you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. ♪ you make me >> reporter: in the closing days this campaign has taken on the era of a traveling concert. over the weekend katy perry, dave matthews

in the critical battleground state, especially critical for him, of florida. peter alexander is with the romney campaign in jacksonville tonight. and peter, what is it like on the trail with this pre occupation going on? >> reporter: well brian, here tonight in the state of florida, it is all too familiar with the devastation. mitt romney tempered his criticism of president obama, not once mentioning president obama by name and in fact encouraged his supporters to give what they could. this of course, came a day after selecting supplies at a storm relief event, his campaign hosted in ohio. still, as the cleanup gets closer to where you are in the northeast, governor romney is facing questions on the federal government's role, arguing the sta states, even the private sector should take the lead today, romney put out a written statement reaffirming the belief, also vowing that fema would have the resources it needs. one more note, there are polls out and both campaigns say they are in the lead right now. the new polls, the president is clinging to a tight lead in the crucial battlegrounds of ohio

, florida. have you noticed something? he will be addressing supporters very shortly. the red cross -- red cross flags as well as the american flag. a scene pretty much throughout hurricane sandy. he is never taking his eye off of the sympathize and let people know he is in their corner. between he and his wife and paul ryan and everyone else associated with the campaign pitching for red cross donations. very crucial in these next days before the presidential election to balance of that very delicate line between just being political and being caring, not the ps/2. it's always a juxtaposition for the challenger. on the same day the president of the united states was touring the garden state with no less than chris christie, a lot of political mechanician is read into that one. as a new jersey resident, you take it wherever you can. earlier today, if you are chris christie looking for financial health, gorman and his job was offering id you ticket and run with it. today the two men during damaged areas. so many of the places that made new jersey one of the cost is clean of states in the cou
in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of respect for the storm victims, they said they were going to avoid any partisan attacks on president obama on this very serious day, they said they would do that, but they apparently really did not mean it, because at a rally in wisconsin today, they had the republican party chairman talking about how america needs to fire barack obama, and saying that the battle to defeat president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take hallo

[ earnest ] out of the blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30-foot stage, not knowing what it was for. just days later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you are fired... i looked both ways, i looked at the crowd, and...we all just lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over 100 million dollars by shutting down our plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that
battleground states in a frenzied effort to get out the vote. speaking in florida, obama said romney would revive the harshest policies of previous republican administrations. >> this is not just a choice between two parties and candidates, it is a choice between keaton evoke different visions of america. on the one hand, you can choose to return to the top down policies that crashed our economy. or you can join me and build a future that focuses on a strong and growing middle class. [applause] >> after a tightened race over the past month, president obama appears to have regained the momentum. speaking in ohio, mitt romney called president obama a failed president. >> i would ask them to put aside all the speeches and ads and all the attacks, and look at the records. you see, talk is cheap. but a record is a real and is a turn with a real effort. change is not measured in words and speeches. change is measured in achievements. >> as mitt romney and president obama push for a strong turnout, the election will likely end up setting a record for early voting. 1.6 million people have already
in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're going through trauma in a major part of the country, a kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once. and... a it's interesting to see how people come together in a circumstance like this. we've seen folks from all over the country step forward and... and offer contributions. >> woodruff: bumps in the recovery were evident in new york city late today, where the public, bellevue hospital , started evacuating about 500 patients because of deteriorating conditions. >> ifill: and for more on fill a short time ago vernor cmo said laguaia area will open for flights tomorrow morning. today's developments, we're joined again tonight by warren levinson of the associated press. he's been making his way around new york city today, and is just back from a trip to the evacuated bellevue hospital. warren, what do we know about why they decided to send patients away? >> well, we're not getting a lot of informatio
florida. his team does. i don't think it's a double-digit lead, but they're feeling good about florida. they're feeling good about wisconsin. they think the apparatus in place from the efforts on behalf of scott walker are going to galvanize republicans and make sure that a ground game turns out the vote. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's play it. >> mitt romney's favorable, unfavorable is still upside down in iowa, not in new hampshire or w
, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio, and one small state in this case new hampshire. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it
a catastrophe from north dakota to florida and everywhere in between. who was to blame for that? that is not an esoteric matter. there is a named person in charge of making sure republicans win senate seats. there was somebody who was in charge of that. for every election. and that specific person in this election obviously failed catastrophically. that specific person is named john cornyn. today the republican party appears ready to respond to his atrocious failure at this job this week. by giving mr. cornyn a promotion. he's getting a reward for nearly shooting the moon in the senate. for doing as bad as humanly possible. at the last job the republican party gave him. the republican party moving forward, apparently would like him to be the number two republican in the whole senate right behind mitch mcconnell. and that is calling failing up. which is amazing on its own terms. in terms of republicans in the senate. i think we also should wonder if that is instructive for how the republican party is going to deal with the overall question of who their leader is and what they sta
